this economy is enacting extreme austerity, and this debate is relevant whether it's obama or romney. is austerity actually denting growth, is it creating more problems than it solves. let me give you one example. we have a sales tax in this country that has been raised from 16% to 18% to 21%. that has created a slight inflation issue. now, pensions are inflation linked. and this country in november has to increase pension abouts by inflation. so by raising 2.5 billion euro v.a.t., it will cost them 3.5 billion euro misincreased pension costs. so you can see the conundrum. they're enacting enormous amounts of austerity, but that's denting an economy which is already in recession. its second since 2008. and things are getting worse. 25% unemployment, a million up sold homes. and we haven't even talked about the banking crisis and the autonomous region, some of which including catalonia are looking trying to get some form of assembly. it is a toxic mix. >> imagine that there will be pressure on markets as this they think unfolds. we're also counting down to the wire here of course in t
obama as to how to prevent the need for a strike on iran. obama's strategy seems to be based on some sort of wishful thinking, whereas netanyahu's is kind of more built upon historical context and what has prochb to proven to be a success in the past. the only time we've ever seen iran suspend their nuclear program was back in 2003 when the threat of credible military action was real. what netanyahu is coming out and saying today is we better make that real. otherwise, you know, it's going to hit us where we least expect it. >> so, john, what do you think an israeli strike on iran would do to the price of oil and the markets? i mean, obviously this has much broader implications for the world and people's lives, but taking a look at the oil markets, how destabilizing would that be? >> you know, it will depend, maria, on what the strike looks like, to be straight here. a pinprick type of operation like they did in syria and iraq years ago would certainly spike the price of oil. you're going to go right to that 2008 $150 high. maybe even higher. but do we stay there? that's the question

a lot. >>> the united general assembly's 67th session opens today with president obama getting ready to take the stage at any moment. conflict in the middle east will be one of the key topics of his speech. we are at the white house and joined with a quick preview. >> reporter: two main subjects on the aden gentleman going to the yutss today. we are going to talk about the violence in the muslim streets that culminated into the american ambassador to libya. and he'll talk about the nuke lower armed iran. i was going to say there are no words for the innocence of the killing we have seen. there's also no video to justify an attack on an embassy. there's no slander that provides an excuse for people to burn a restaurant in lebanon or destroi a cool in tune this -- he does not think that the united states can live with the nuclear armed iran. carl, one point to think about as we think about the president's remarks here, he's been under fire f, and the obam camp is making an important issue, obama is clearly walking a tightrope today and doesn't want to threat up his re-election chances.
if it was president obama gets re-elected, then at the high end you'll see the bush tax cuts not extended for the high end. and then -- but if romney wins it, you would see them all extended. is there one that would have a better outcome in your view? >> you know, i think there's a -- there's a tension between two different things here. on the one hand, there's a sense that in the very near term with a weak overall economic performance continuing that raising levels of taxes wherever in the distribution may have some negative effects on economic growth. and then there's a harder long-term question, frankly, which is how tax rates on capital gains, on dividends which feed through a somewhat complicated channel by encouraging various kinds of saving activity and ultimately lowering the cost of capital to businesses and encouraging investment, how that translates into long-term economic growth. that is frankly a difficult chain to try to measure in any precise way, and consequently it's harder to be able to trace through the quantitative impacts on growth to follow through on channels for that. >> to fol
. something for candidates romney and obama in today's data. you can imagine romney pounding on the weak growth and obama saying hey, 286,000 more jobs out there and there's also something for bulls and bears but not much anybody from a sober analysis this remains a weak growth economy. melissa? >> thank you very much, steve liesman. >>> and from the u.s. to spain, let's head across the atlantic for more on spain's budget as the country hopes to avoid a bailout. steve sedgwick joins us live with the very latest. steve. >> reporter: yeah, thanks very much, indeed. we just heard literally in the last 20 minutes or so that the press conference, the announcement about this austerity that we've been waiting for all day will now get the conference in around about an hour's time. so all should be revealed about what rajoy intends to do. in the next stage of austerity. because i think the next stage because there's already been at least four bouts of austerity from this government since it came in in december last year. the last was a 2012 budget which we got 64 billion euros worth of austerity
